COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Officers with the College Station Police Department have arrested a wanted man who ran from them Monday morning.

Demontreyon Jackson, 19, is wanted for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was found and arrested after a short search Monday after K9s and officers found him hiding in a dumpster.

CSPD said officers went to the area of Tarrow and University on a tip that Jackson was there, but they said he slipped away and was last seen in the 1000 block of Spring Loop.

They are asking people in the area to go inside, lock your doors and windows and don't let anyone in. Several officers and K9s are in the Spring Loop area searching for Jackson, who they said often carries a gun.

This isn't the first time Jackson made headlines. He was arrested back in May of 2020 after he allegedly attacked a jogger in College Station. The victim told officers they were running in the 700 block of Texas Avenue just after 6 a.m. when Jackson grabbed him from behind and knocked him to the ground.

A passerby saw the attack and when they tried to help, Jackson allegedly ran away to the Northpoint Crossing Apartments. Investigators said he then called dispatch and reported a shooting at another area in an attempt to draw officers away from him so he could escape.

In that case, Jackson was charged with aggravated robbery, evading arrest, making a false police report and failing to identify. His next court date for that case is set for November.
